The VQ5000 series of high flow valves are designed for use in automotive, brickwork, forestry, mineral processing, machine tool, and metal casting industries to drive large bore actuators. The five-port solenoid valve is engineered for large bore actuator applications requiring rapid movement of heavy loads. It provides a high coefficient of volume flow up to 4.4 Cv. It is available with single or double solenoids in both metal and rubber seal construction. SMC Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4911-589
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
